Happy New Years Dolan Family!
As we head into the new year, we wanted to share a few of our favorite events from 2021!



We started by kicking off the summer with the Reno River Festival which included Reno Tahoe Adventure Park with obstacles, rides, games, and challenges for the entire family to enjoy. For those who love to shop, there was a Vendor Village that showcased over 100 local shops. All you beer enthusiasts, don't fret there was a Craft Beer and Selzter Experience for you to enjoy. Do you love live music? Local artists were performing on the Wingfield stage while guests were enjoying food and beverages. Some would say it was the perfect way to kick off the summer with food, music, shopping and great company!


Soon after the Reno River Festival, the Wildest Richest Rodeo in the West rolled in– the Reno Rodeo. We celebrated 102 years of wild west family fun watching all of our favorite rodeo events from Barrel Racing to Bull Riding and don’t forget our favorite- Mutton Bustin! We also enjoyed fun carnival games and awesome food. A definite summer favorite for everyone in Reno for the past 102 years. We are excited to see you this year to celebrate the 103rd year of the Wildest Richest Rodeo in the West!


The next event we would like to showcase was a first for us. The Fernley Movie Nights, where we gave the chance to win a VIP Movie Night Experience in the Park to the Fernley Community. Enter to win by heading to our Dolan Fernley Facebook or Instagram, liking the Movie Night post and commenting who you would like to join you if you won. The winner is announced the Monday before each movie night. They enjoyed snacks, drinks, and comfy seats with an exceptional view! Don't worry if you don't win, the night was complete with face painting, snacks and of course a movie great for family night!


We wrapped up our summer events with a special one that is near and dear to our hearts. First and foremost, the Dolan family would like to say a big thank you to each and every employee here at Dolan. It’s because of them we are able to do everything we can for our community and because of this Dolan Auto Group was nominated for the 2021 Northern Nevada’s Best Places to Work in the XL Business Category. It's already a huge honor to be nominated alongside other XL Businesses such as Sierra Nevada Corporation and Tahoe Forest Health System. However, we are proud to announce we were named the 2021 Best Place to Work in the XL Category. Community is our backbone and for the community here at Dolan we strive to do our best to treat everyone like family-Thank you Team Dolan!


With another eventful summer in the books, we head into the fall events. For all you car enthusiasts, a fan favorite- Cars & Coffee!  Who doesn’t love the sound of that? At our Lexus location we invited our community for the chance to show off their very own unique cars. We had everything from tuners, exotic cars to muscle cars. Everyone was sporting their best rides! This event grows each year, and we hope to see you there in your very own!


Lastly, we wanted to showcase the Downtown River Run. It was the final race in the 2021 Running Series which Team Dolan loved running. The route went under the iconic “RENO” arch, following the stunning Truckee river with mountain views, over bridges, through parks and then back under the Reno arch to cross the finish line. The run included a 5k, 10k, and a kids one miler, perfect for the whole family to enjoy. Put on your running shoes because this year we have a lot more races we are looking forward to running with you!


There were many other events throughout the year such as: Bacon, Bourbon and Brews, Hole In One Golf Tournaments, Rhythm and Rawhide, Battle of the Rattle, Donor Walk,  Fern45 Poker Run, the Virginia City Outhouse Races and so much more! As we reminisce on all the good times we had in 2021, we encourage you to check off some bucket list items and make 2022 a year to remember, we know we plan to. We hope to see you and your family at these events making memories you won't forget!
